Facebook—a social network with amazing growth—is all the rage according to media and early adopter marketers. While there are many opportunities with this ready-made marketing platform, as well as challenges, marketers first need a strategy before engaging.

In this 90-minute online seminar, find out from a Forrester Analyst and Facebook expert what the demographics, Technographics and audience is like within this social network. Discover the different ways to approach Facebook from marketing, to advertising, to intelligence, to widgets.
